Polish: Excels in run support, and he is a sure tackle for this stage of his career. Athletic ability allows him to compete in coverage at the high school level, but he still has refinement left for his craft. He takes negative steps often, but athletic ability allows him to overcome that. 

Bottom Line: Daniels excels in run support at the high school level. He is a natural athlete who can make plays down the field in coverage and has room to grow with his frame, but he has to refine his overall technique and eliminate negative steps at the college level. He displays a nose for the football. He has the potential to be a multi-year starter at the Power 5 level later in his career.
